Constellation Tales

Stars glow with pride.
Radiating dots of brilliance
Across the acrylic sky.

Like splatters of white gloss
On a matt black surface.

I seek to discover patterns,
Telling tales of fortune.

We lie beneath the galaxy,
And pray the lights
Guide us to a convincing fantasy.

Career? No idea!

When I consider my dream career,
I sink into a huge black hole.
My ideas are as abundant as saffron.
I find no certainty in my soul.

I lack the bravery of a lion heart,
I can’t do public speaking.
I’ll never have a saxophone solo,
As I’m not attention seeking.

All I know is I want to feel valued,
Like the elephant’s ivory.
I will set myself a goal:
By spring, I’ll know who I want to be.
